• An Israeli source says he was “stunned by the level of anger” among Democratic congressmen in the U.S. “over attempts to portray Obama to the American public as an enemy of Israel because of his efforts to restart peace talks and freeze settlement construction.” Such critics may or may not be chastened by the POTUS’s shiny new Nobel Peace Prize. [Haaretz]
• Disabled New Jersey 13-year-old Sydney Forman, who is non-verbal, will have her Bat Mitzvah aided by a communication device. [Jewish Community Voice]
